   Dog Sports: K9 Nose Work: Level I06/07-07/12  

Dogs see the world through their noses. This sport is designed to develop your dog's remarkable sense of smell and natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of treats, toys, and exercise. It is a great way for your dog to build confidence and burn both mental and physical energy while having fun. If your dog has a nose, it can play this K9 Nose Work game. Bring your dog and learn together how to play this fun, new sport with our certified instructor. It's fun for both of you! Dogs must be at least 6 months old with current immunizations. Bring soft treats your dog likes (with a distinct scent), a 6-foot leash (no reels) plus flat collar (no choke collars) or harness, and crate or kennel for your pet.
